DESCRIPTION

In 1975, one year before his death, former French Minister of Culture André Malraux visited the artists of Haiti and decided, at the last moment, to insert a full chapter on the Saint Soleil movement in his book l’Intemporel. French filmmaker and writer Jean Marie Drot produced a series of films on Malraux, including Le dernier voyage d’André Malraux en Haïti ou la découverte de l’art vaudou (The last voyage of Andre Malraux in Haiti or the Discovery of Vodou Art). In this interview, Drot discusses the role of magic and of the clandestine in the Haitian imaginary, the meaning of “naïve” or “primitive” art amid academicism and the artistic establishment, and the relationship between art, culture, politics and commercialization in general. Interview Jean Dominique.

“The role of these painters was to cast flowers upon the wounds, upon the misery, upon despair itself.”

Jean-Marie Drot
